Much of the work in animal law is, creating, community organizing, and lobbying for, the passage of laws benefiting animals. This, course teaches a step-by-step method of drafting, new legislation. Students will select a, jurisdiction and draft a piece of animal law, legislation for that jurisdiction. Then the course, shifts to community organizing and lobbying for, the passage of that legislation. Students will, practice lobbying techniques including meeting, with legislators, giving committee testimony, and, giving interviews. Students will also learn how to, create and use mass media content promoting the, proposed legislation. While this course is, designed around animal law legislation and, lobbying, it would be beneficial to students, interested in any type of advocacy and public, interest law.
